Hunter usually picks out his own clothes, and he’s is actually a pretty good dresser.
I’ve been surprised a lot of times when he will pick out outfits that perfectly coordinate with each other, and my surprise probably comes from the fact that my dad and brother often needed my mom’s assistance in the fashion department, so I assumed my little boy would be lacking as well.
But today we had a little lesson in the do’s and don’ts of outfit coordinating when he came in the house in a red stripped shirt and red, black, and white plaid shorts.
Now, I’ll have to give it to them that the colors do go very well together, but I explained why we can’t wear plaids and stripes together, because the patterns don’t match and so it makes our eyes confused. He was reluctant to give up his hard-picked outfit, but agreed to wear something else.
And hopefully, learned a little principle in suitable dressing.
